An unidentified motorcycle rider was injured after getting hit by a vehicle in Grant Hill on Saturday evening, October 10.
The accident transpired in the 2600 block of Market Street at approximately 6:00 p.m. A 2019 Honda CRF250 motorcycle was driving eastbound on Market Street when it collided with a 2013 Mitsubishi sedan pulling out of a 99 Cents Only store.
How the collision occurred, and the reason why it happened is currently unclear. The motorcyclist sustained major injuries as a result of the crash. He fractured his arm and dislocated his hip following the wreck.
Drugs and alcohol were not considered as factors in the crash. Additional information about the accident is limited at the moment.
Motorcycle Accident Investigation is Underway
Local authorities are currently investigating the crash further.
Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable to the dangers on the roadway compared to passengers in private vehicles. Unlike passengers in private vehicles, motorcycle riders are not protected by seatbelts and airbags.
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, motorcycle riders have 16 times the risk of injury and 35 times the risk of a fatal crash compared to car passengers. Although a variety of laws protects motorcycle riders, motorcycle accidents are still an inevitable occurrence. Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to observe traffic laws.
To avoid sustaining major injuries, motorcycle riders are encouraged to dress appropriately and wear a helmet every time they ride their motorcycle to avoid fatal injuries. Wearing helmets were estimated to be 37% effective in preventing motorcycle deaths.
